Gifted and Talented Program
with Ms. Thurlow
Welcome to the Gifted and Talented program. I have been teaching for Omaha Public Schools since 2000. I have a BA degree in Elementary Education; an endorsement in Gifted Education and a Masters degree in Instructional Technology. I am the Gifted and Talented facilitator at Highland, Jefferson, Florence, and Masters. Students at each of my schools qualify for Gifted and Talented services by achieving high scores on standardized tests or by teacher nominations based on classroom performance. The students have a scheduled class once a week. Specialized G/T instruction consists of math, language arts and creative activities constructed using the G/T framework. Judging from student reactions, they enjoy the enriching curricular extensions. Feel free to contact me at anytime with questions, comments, or concerns.
